In this era, everything is subjective. What you deem as "legitimate" is your subjective opinion. it probably differs from mine. There might a popular consensus but even that is just a bunch of like minded people sharing similar opinions. Just because money is involved does not mean that someone is more qualified or their writing is more legitimate than another. Look at Ign or any of the major gaming magazines. All paid writers, yet their content is influenced and bought by the marketing department. So is their work legitimate? Or more legitimate than say the guy or gal who is writing because of their passion for games but does not have the connections or the ability to become staffed somewhere deemed "more legitimate than their personal blog?"
Everything humanity does is inherently meaningless. We as human apply and make meaning for ourselves. So if you think blogs are literature then they are. If you don't they aren't, but that soly applies to you and you alone. There are no universals.

If this is the closest thing to another Starship Troopers game then I'll check it out. Something about fighting giant bugs resonates within me.

It works better when hearing it, but the chuckles are still there.
I had a problem with Dragon Age: Origins. The pacing of the story was jarring and the I didn't like the plot line one bit. I'm tired of this sword and sorcery cliche that all your enemies have to be animalistic, non-conversational, evil just for evil's sake bad guys. The whole Blight is just boring to me. Every hundred years a bunch of Darkspawn attack the above ground people just for shits. The motive of their attacks every couple hundred years or so still escapes me, other than well it's Tuesday time to rape and pillage. It was just bland.
The dude from Minecraft because the power of creation is one of the most powerful abilities to have.
